Poseidon Transmission, a unit of Anbaric Transmission, filed an application with the New York State Public Service Commission for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need to build the Poseidon Project, an underground/submarine HVDC electric transmission line that will import up to 500 MW of electric power from the PJM Interconnection into Long Island.
By linking Long Island to PJM, the Poseidon Project will enable hundreds of thousands of Long Island residents and businesses to access lower energy prices, while enhancing reliability and storm preparedness. The Poseidon cable will be completely buried along existing rights of way or underwater, and will generate zero air emissions and water discharges.
Poseidon Transmission LLC is a unit of Anbaric Transmission, a developer of independent transmission projects across the U.S.
Anbaric has helped develop two similar transmission projects in New York over the past six years — the 660 MW Neptune Regional Transmission System (RTS), and the 660 MW Hudson Line, operational in June 2013, which links the PJM grid with the ConEd Substation at West 49th Street in Manhattan.
